Oregon State Police say a fleeing driver reached a speed of 120 miles per hour with his 3-year-old son in the back seat during a 40-mile chase on Interstate 5 Tuesday afternoon north of Eugene.

The chase ended when the fleeing car collided with another car on an off ramp. No one was injured.

Troopers arrested 32-year-old Kameron Michael Payne of McCleary, Wash., on charges of reckless driving, attempting to elude and endangering another person. The 3-year-old boy who was in a child safety seat was taken into protective custody by welfare workers with the state Department of Human Services.
